1625 Marriage of Charles I and Henrietta Maria Silver Medal

1625 Marriage of Charles I and Henrietta Maria Silver Medal Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

Silver medal commemorating the marriage of Charles I of England to the Roman Catholic Bourbon princess, Henrietta Maria of France in 1625. This medal is one of two known types. Both bear a similar double portrait to the obverse, the draped busts of the couple facing each other (vis-à-vis) under a sunburst. This reverse of this type shows the winged cupid, bearing roses and lilies. Charles and Henrietta - then aged 15 - were married by proxy on 1 May 1625 at Notre-Dame de Paris. The groom had succeeded his father as king of England on 27 March. The married couple met in person on 13 June in Canterbury. The marriage would endure until Charles death on the scaffold in 1649. Her husbands execution drove Henrietta into exile on the continent though she returned to England after the restoration of her son as Charles II.
